My pricing is based on image size and treatment, i.e., matted print, frame print, metal print, acrylic print, or canvas print. I will explain the differences and pros and cons below.
Image pricing is based on the shortest dimension of the image. So, for example, if you are viewing a portrait image use the width of the image as the pricing criteria. A landscape image would use the height of the image as the pricing criteria.
I have included prices for only matted and framed prints in this table. Contact me for pricing on other treatments. Pricing for metal, acrylic or canvas prints is relatively, but not a lot more expensive than framed prints.
The table below provides pricing for full-framed (3:2) images and for panoramas (3:1). See sizing for additional information on other variations.

The following options are available:
Matted Print: a print on photographic paper which is mounted on acid-free 3/16 inch foam core board. Conservation quality matting is precisely cut to provide an adequate border-to-frame separation and visually balance the image. The mat is adhered to the mounted print to complete the framing of the image. All materials and processes are of archival quality. All matted prints are produced in-house. The matted print size is always larger than the image size due to the mat borders. A printed photograph provides the greatest sharpness and color range.
Framed Print: is a matted print framed in-house. Pricing is based on using Nielsen Profile 99 metal frames and high quality plexiglass (Acrylite 1/10 inch), which is my standard for color exhibition prints. Custom framing options are available. Frame size is equal to matted print size.
The following options are processed through a third parties under my supervision. For all of these treatments, image size is approximately equal to frame size and there are optional border treatments available.
Canvas Print: provides a “painterly representation” but does not have the sharpness or color range of the other options. The canvas is mounted on a frame and ready to hang.
Metal Print: provides a sense of depth to an image, almost like you can walk into it. Most images will print well on metal, but some will not and that is a consideration. Image detail and color range are not comparable to a printed image. A metal print is ready to hang.
Acrylic Print: this is the best of both worlds, metal and photographic prints. It is more expensive, but the results combine the best of printed and metal media, sharpness, color range and image depth. An acrylic print is ready to hang.
